Holy Ghost; and they spake the word of God with bold


32 And the multitude of them that believed, were of one heart, and of one soul: neither said any of them, that aught of the things which he possessed, was his own: but they had all things


33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus; and great grace was upon them


34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands, or houses, sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man, according as he had need.

36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite and of the country of Cyprus,

37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.



BUT a certain man, named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,

price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

5 And Ananias, hearing these words, fell down, and gave up the ghost and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in :

8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me, whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.

9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.

10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men

doors, and brought them forth, and said,

20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people, all the words of this life.

11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

21 And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

22 But when the officers came, and found them not in the pri

them :

12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch :

13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them; but the people magnified them:

24 Now, when the high priest, and the captain of the temple, and the chief priests, heard these multi-things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow. 25 Then came one, and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.

26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence (for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned:)

16 There came also a tude out of the cities round about, unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one. 17 Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,

18 And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.

23 Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without, before the doors; but, when we had opened, we found no man within.

19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison

27 And, when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,

29 Then Peter, and the other apostles, answered and said, We ought to obey God, rather

than men.

37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee, in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him; he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed. 38 And now, I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel, or this work, be of men, it will come to nought:

30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew, and hanged on a tree :

31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand, to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give re

32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

33 When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.

34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;


40 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.

41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.

42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do, as touching these men.

3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.


4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldeans, and dwelt in Charran; and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.

5 And he gave him none in-sent out our fathers first. heritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.

6 And God spake on this wise, that his sced should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.

7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage, will I judge, said God: and after that, shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.

10 And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt, and all his house.

11 Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt, and Chanaan, and great affliction; and our fathers found no sustenance.

19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil-entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live. Ff
